Clonal repositories of economically important tree fruit and nut crops and clonally propagated vegetable crops been established. The NPS Germplasm Matrix Team reviews specific plans and recommends release of funds held at Headquarters which have been appropriated for this specific purpose. When a need has been met, funds are "rolled over" to another high priority clonal repository activity.
